The State Auditor’s Office released sixteen more audits this week and four entities were found to have significant problems. The Winlock School District No. 232 lacked adequate controls over enrollment reporting in its Alternative Learning Experience program. Record keeping was so sloppy that, “We determined an error rate of 100 percent resulting in an over-reporting of 559.24 monthly full-time equivalent students for the 2010-2011 school year.”
Meanwhile, Timberlands Regional Support Network was found to have violated the State Open Meeting Act awarding contracts, and paying more on one contract than was approved.
Mount Pleasant School District No. 29-93 requested a special investigation and the State Audit confirmed the misappropriation of $1,020 by one employee and $4,000 in other questionable transactions. The local prosecuting attorney was notified.
Finally, Pullman School District No. 267′s “procedures were inadequate to ensure compliance with federal suspension and debarment requirements for its School Breakfast and National School Lunch programs.”
